For sale in the traditional village of Kefalas: This architect designed bungalow provides a unique opportunity to experience the true Cretan life of olive and grape cultivation in an impressive 3 bedroom villa with private pool. It is located in a quiet position on the edge of the charming village of Kefalas. The carefully considered layout and quality build contribute to the charm of the single storey villa. The house comprises:
Gated entrance and off-road parking area: The access track finishes at the gates to the property which open into a spacious graveled parking area. This then leads to the underground garage.
Main entrance: An additional gate set in a stone arch opens into the easily maintained side garden and then onward to the front door.
Open plan living room: From the side covered veranda into the open plan living area with seating and dining to the left & ultra-modern kitchen to the right. The seating area is generous with patio doors to the front & side opening to the shaded covered veranda & pool areas. Picture windows provide additional natural light. A corner fireplace is another focal point in the room. The internal dining area is placed next to the 2nd set of patio doors with views across the side garden.
Kitchen: The stunning “U” shaped kitchen has multiple Italian designed rich chestnut-coloured floor units with matching work surfaces. Stainless steel handles and accessories enrich the colour of the units. An inspired feature is the seamless blending of the stainless steel cooker hood with the silver-toned wall cupboards which are next to it. Built-in appliances include split level oven and ceramic hob, conical stainless steel cooker hood, large fridge/freezer and dishwasher.
Bedroom 3: A hallway leads to the first of 3 ensuite bedrooms. The room is a spacious double with sizeable cherry-wood effect fitted wardrobe & patio doors opening to the side terrace and garden.
En-suite: The en-suite shower room door is discreetly concealed within the wardrobe façade. It is fully tiled in fern green & ecru with décor border, tiled shower stall, white ceramic fitments, chrome accessories and finished with an illuminated mirror cabinet.
Utility area: Next is a utility cupboard which houses the washing machine & house-hold equipment.
Bedroom 2: This is a large room again with fully fitted wardrobes, this time in a richer mahogany finish. Again the ensuite is accessed via the central wardrobe door. Patio doors open to the side terraces.
En-suite: Similar in style to bedroom 3, this time with French Blue and ecru tiles plus white fittings.
Master Bedroom: This room is located at the front of the house with its double patio doors offering magnificent views of both the White Mountains across the pool and to the garden and private terrace. Again the floor-to-ceiling wardrobes offer considerable storage for clothing and seasonal bedding together with the hidden ensuite.
En-suite shower room:The final colour combination is coffee and cream. The shower area is self-tiled and the room is finished with white ceramic hand-basin, WC plus an attractive illuminated chrome framed mirror.
Garden: Immediately round the house isa relatively low maintenance garden set partially to gravel with the rear area enclosed to perfect for vegetables or additional fruit trees. The garden is full of trees including citrus fruits and mulberry. Front & side covered verandas offer plentiful shade
Roof: The roof is fully tiled but as yet has not been converted to the usual roof terrace as the views are stunning from ground level. The views would be panoramic of the mountains, Kefalas village and a very distant sea view. The property has sufficient building density to add an external staircase if desired. Alternatively a metal staircase could be fitted.
Pool: The pool is 32sqm with perfectly placed Roman steps, providing a cooling seat from which to admire the superb mountain view. The area is fully paved between the front veranda and pool with gravelled areas to each side. The area is enclosed with tasteful safety railings and an outside shower is located close by.
Garage: A spacious 40sqm garage currently houses the 2 x 1000lt fresh water storage tanks. As it has electric and water and is total dry it could be used for storage, as a games room or work-shop if desired.
Olive Grove and vineyard: Steps lead from the pool to the olive grove, a charming area which is filled with 25 productive olive trees. Towards the far boundary are vines which have not been tended for several years. However with clearing and pruning, it should be possible to be brought back to productive fruiting life.
